1997 Sassicaia, Tenuta San Guido


$300.00 per Bottle


2 Bottles




"Medium-dark ruby in the glass, with pretty aromas of spices, black currant, cherries and blackberries, this Tuscan red is full-bodied on the palate, with intense velvety tannins. Long, long finish. An outstanding Sassicaia. Best after 2002. 12,500 cases made." Wine Spectator

"This is the answer--Sassicaia at what [Dr. Sebastiano] Rosa considers the ideal age. It's still very young and vigorous, but it's gained complexity and subtlety, while keeping that trademark tobacco note and rich, supple tannins. There's absolutely no hurry to drink it up." Margaret Rand, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 12, 2006

"Sweet. pointed. Round and mellow and quite evolved. Very charming but more relaxed, loose and French than the California style and sweetness of the Ornellaia. Very appetising. Light and very Cabernet. 13%." JancisRobinson.com
